The commitment of on-site volunteers is one of the most meaningful compliments to and resources for The Santa Fe Opera. From seasonal to year-round opportunities, there are many ways to volunteer on and off-site!
Santa Fe opera docents are expected to transmit accurate information as to the company’s history, production, and repertory, as well as house and backstage details. Docent tours run approximately one hour and cover a number of production stations on three different ground levels backstage, including much walking up and down stairs. Docent training includes mandatory attendance at a high percentage of the twelve or more sessions over a three week period in May and June. The majority of backstage tours are given May through August, though some off-season tours are offered to educational groups.

Be an ambassador for The Santa Fe Opera on the Thornton Plaza before each performance. This program requires volunteers to welcome patrons and to collaborate with several other departments including front-of-house and the box office. Overture volunteers direct patrons to various events on and off campus, provide information about the theatre and the current season’s productions. Each volunteer will attend one a training session before the season begins.
